Survey finds continuing presence of E. coli at Irondale Beach County Park, but Quimper Peninsula water largely high quality – PDN

More on the Irondale E.Coli issues. The Jefferson County Health Dept. is going to continue to follow up on this over the next year to find the source of the problem.

Septic waste is the leading cause of stream pollution by Escherichia coli, or E. coli, in the northern part of the Quimper Peninsula, and the worst area is Irondale Beach County Park, according to a two-year survey. Nevertheless, the study found that much of the area’s water is of high quality, Michael Dawson, lead environmental health specialist for the Jefferson County Water Quality Program, told about 20 people at the Nordland Garden Club last Thursday evening. Charlie Bermant reports. (Peninsula Daily News)
